Food, beer, staff, atmosphere, what can i say. If you are looking to spend some time in Kyneton or in the local area (Woodend, Trentham etc.), I would highly recommend you visit The Royal George Hotel. You will not be disappointed. 10/10!!!

Enjoyed a lovely lunch on Sunday, at the RGH, with my wife and 3 year old. We shared the Spiced Twice Cooked Pork Belly and the Confit Duck Leg which were both sumptuous. The beer tap list is excellent. I really enjoyed the Exit Brewery Milk Stout and the Arctic Fox English Pale after the bartender suggested and offered tastings.... More

A bunch of us got the train from Sunbury, Gisborne & Macedon to the Royal George for a few catch up drinks. Tried some amazing beers with both Boat Rocker brews getting the gold. Tried a few of the bar snacks and they were delicious, none of us could fault them. Bar staff were excellent to deal with and very... More

This pub is the best place for any beer appreciator, 16 taps of craft beer to try and all the information to go with them. The bar snacks were delicious, all reasonably priced as were the beers - we were able to enjoy the bar atmosphere and the courtyard or balcony upstairs. Interesting artworks, friendly staff and locals, plenty to... More
